A Seasonal Farewell to Beet and Fennel Salad

Winter is finally over and summer is on its way. With that, I am looking forward to strawberries, sweet corn, peaches and other seasonal deliciousness that comes with the warm weather. But before I embrace, the juicy fruits and crisp vegetables of summer, I must bid farewell to my very favorite winter salad at the Sideboard Cafe in Danville.

Farewell, my favorite winter salad. I will miss your beautiful golden and purple beets, graced with pungent sliced fennel, slices of juicy, bright grapefruit and topped with a generous, velvety chunk of Humboldt Fog cheese. With a side of pommes frites, you are the perfect lunch or dinner- full of flavor and texture in every bite. I anxiously await your return.
